The connection of Alum Creek Trail to Blendon Woods and Little Turtle neighborhood will allow many folks to access new places without need of a car to make the trip!

Columbus is adding recycling containers near its drinking water reservoirs and trying to educate people about plastic pollution which can threaten watersheds and clean water. FACT sorts and recycles cans and bottles (plastic, glass, metal) from the collected trash debris at our cleanup events, because recycling is better for the planet!

"If you are a Central Ohio resident and can plant the tree on your private property."

Thanks to 12 hard working volunteers today who helped us gather 44 big bags full of trash and 7 oversized items from within and along Alum Creek at Nelson Rd and Academy Park. The "canyon" by the railroad retaining wall looks amazingly nicer now.

The guy with the sign by the Broad St. bridge got 9 bags himself to cap off this amazing team effort.
